Great Britain Davis Cup captain Leon Smith believes Andy Murray is in the form of his life as the Scot gets set for a quarterfinal clash with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at Wimbledon. Cheap Air Jordan UK For Sale .The world No.2 has yet to drop a set at the tournament and is fully justifying the tag of title favourite he adopted following Novak Djokovics shock loss to Sam Querrey.Murray had been expected to face a test from Nick Kyrgios in the fourth round but brushed him aside.Smith said: I think hes playing his best tennis of his life. Hes continued to improve so many areas of his game. Even from when he won here and the U.S. Open, you look at his game and his second serve in particular is so much improved.His net play, his confidence going forwards -- you just look at the stats from this week and hes come forward with a lot of success. And the aggression of his game. Hes playing closer to the baseline, dictating a lot of the points.His clay-court run was amazing so hes playing really, really well. Thats the thing with him, and the other top guys as well. Theyre just striving to get better and better, and hes certainly done that.On Tuesday, Smith named Murray in his team for next weeks Davis Cup quarterfinal against Serbia in Belgrade.Murray has consistently said he will play as long as he feels fit and healthy, and Smith is hopeful that will be the case.He certainly has not been overly taxed physically or mentally so far, maintaining an impressive level of focus throughout his matches.Coach Ivan Lendl can probably take a lot of credit for that. It was noticeable how much Murrays on-court behaviour improved during their first spell working together, and it appears to be the same again.Smith said: Andy would have known what he was looking for in his coaching team and theres no way hed have approached Ivan if he didnt feel there was something to gain from it, and it looks already [like thats the case].[Facing Kyrgios], people talked about the stress of that one, but he was so focused from start to finish. We didnt see him expend any energy on anything else apart from the tennis ball and the points.I thought he looked really in control of everything and theres no doubt that Ivan will have added to this, and thats why hes here. Obviously it was the best stage of his career when he was with Ivan last time and lets hope it can repeat itself.He obviously feels Ivan has that aura around him that enables him to stay focused. Im not privy to the conversations they have in private and Im sure those are of as much value as when Ivans watching the match.Murray has an excellent record against 12th seed Tsonga having beaten him 12 times from 14 meetings.Two of those matches came at Wimbledon, with Murray defeating the Frenchman in the quarterfinals in 2010 and the semifinals two years later.Both matches were hard, said Murray. A few of the sets came down to just a couple of points.I know Tsonga is one of the best grass-court players in the world. If he plays well, and Im not on my game, I can lose that match for sure.Murrays quarterfinal showdown with Tsonga begins this afternoon on Centre Court. Cheap Air Jordan UK 2019 . LOUIS -- St. Wholesale Air Jordan UK Free Shipping . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth inning," Roenicke said. http://www.cheapairjordan.co.uk/ .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play.

Torture numbers, and theyll confess to anything. College Jerseys Cheap .A perfect quote from the great Gregg Easterbrook, and one that is relevant now more than ever.NFL teams have entire departments dedicated to analytics. ESPN Stats & Info is constantly delivering new, innovative data. Pro Football Focus is charting every aspect of every player on every play. The NFL is using chip technology to track each players every move.Its a new, exciting age for statistics, but also one that is quite convoluted. Were constantly delivering and absorbing data, but often were unable to correctly process what is and isnt relevant to a players prospects. We have snaps, pass routes, yards per carry, completion percentage, missed games because of injury, off-target rates, average depth of target, etc. The list goes on and on.The challenge for NFL teams and analysts is to determine which statistics are important and which are just noise.

China Womens College Jerseys . Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League. http://www.ncaawholesalejerseys.com/ . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. PULLMAN, Wash. -- Budda Baker was walking to the sideline in the fourth quarter when he was jostled from behind by someone in crimson, who then proceeded to chirp at Washingtons standout safety.Baker heard what was said, turned, and pointed at the closed end of Martin Stadium.All I had to do was look at the scoreboard, Baker said.It told the story of a day of dominance by No. 6 Washington in a 45-17 rout of No. 23 Washington State that put the Huskies into the Pac-12 championship game and on the cusp of a spot in the College Football Playoff.Washington (11-1, 8-1 Pac-12, No. 5 CFP) rolled from the outset, using a 28-point first quarter behind three touchdown passes from quarterback Jake Browning to claim the Pac-12 North title and keep the Apple Cup in Seattle for a fourth straight yearA win in the Pac-12 title game next Friday against Colorado or Southern California would likely land the Huskies in the college football version of the final four.It doesnt matter. Im just glad the (Huskies) are there and hopefully well show up and play our best game of the year, Washington coach Chris Petersen said.Browning threw for 292 yards but it was the first quarter that set the stage. Browning tossed all three touchdown passes in the first 15 minutes, hitting Dante Pettis on plays of 18 and 61 yards and John Ross on a 6-yarder. Browning had 243 yards passing by halftime, the Huskies had 386 total yards at the break and even Washington States third-quarter rally didnt make Washington sweat.Washington tied a school record with the 28-point first quarter and the four straight over the Cougars (8-4, 7-2, No. 23 CFP) is the longest streak since the Huskies won six straight between 1998-2003.Its what we expected. We expected to be off to a fast start, Washington defensive lineman Elijah Qualls said. Thats what we worked on all week. We knew we could do it.Browning completed 21 of 29 passes, becoming the third quarterback in Pac-12 history with at least 40 TD passes in a season. Ross had eight catches for 80 yards and his 16th TD catch of the season.Washington State quarterback Luke Falk was 33 of 50 passing for 269 yards and a 9-yard TD pass to Gabe Marks in the third quarter, but was intercepted three times. More damaging, the Cougars were unable to score on three drives inside the Washington 10.I thought we were too quick to press. I thought we made more out of it than it was, Washington State coach Mike Leach said.Eight years after this matchup was mocked because of how bad the two teams were, the Apple Cup was back on a stage of national relevance as the North title game and regardedd by many fans as the most important matchup of the 109 meetings. China College Gear. t became a purple party for the Huskies that made the trip over the Cascade Mountains to the Palouse.Lavon Coleman added 82 yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns. His 15-yard TD run early in the fourth quarter capped a 98-yard drive and sent many clad in crimson back to the tailgating lots.Washington rolled up 386 yards in the first half, 252 coming in the first quarter and capitalized on three mistakes by Washington State.Jamal Morrow fumbled on Washington States opening possession and eight plays later, Pettis caught an 18-yard touchdown and Washington had a 14-0 lead. Later in the half, Gerard Wicks was stopped at the 1 on fourth-and-goal on a great play by Benning Potoae. And on the final drive of the first half, Falk was intercepted by Beavers in the end zone.Down 35-17, Washington State had a chance to pull within 11 late in the third quarter, but Wicks was again stuffed on fourth-and-goal.On offense, we werent trying to do enough, Marks said. We were soft.POLL IMPLICATIONSWashington picked up another win over a ranked opponent that should impress voters and give the 1-loss Huskies a chance to leap Wisconsin and possibly the Ohio State-Michigan loser in both the AP Top 25 and the CFP rankings. Washington State is likely to fall out of the Top 25 after being ranked the past four weeks.BROKEN APPLEThe apple on top of the trophy given to the winner of the Apple Cup was missing after it broke off on Thursday night. Petersen wouldnt implicate the culprit but said it was barely touched and snapped. This doesnt appear to be the first time the apple has broken off.THE TAKEAWAYWashington: The big play was a key in Washingtons big first half. The Huskies had eight plays of 15 yards or more. That included the 61-yard touchdown to Pettis, the 22-yard touchdown run by Coleman and a mixture of other long plays like Darrell Daniels 50-yard catch on a double pass from Pettis and Ross 31-yard run.Washington State: The Cougars defense was exposed for the second straight week. After holding California and Arizona to a combined 28 points, the Cougars gave up more than 500 total yards for the second straight week.UP NEXTWashington: The Huskies will face Colorado or Southern California in the Pac-12 championship game next Friday.Washington State: The Cougars will await a second straight bowl bid.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '

"It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Cheap Air Max 2017 .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. http://www.airmaxshoescheaponline.com/ .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court. (STATS) -- After taking over as Charleston Southerns coach in 2013, Jamey Chadwell felt like his program was trying to earn respect across the Big South Conference.It might have built slowly within the conference, so its been ironic how quickly its come on a national scale.The Buccaneers, coming off the best season in the programs 25-year history, open the 2016 season ranked No. 7 in the STATS FCS Top 25 and are a heavy favorite to repeat as Big South champions.Itll obviously be unique because since Ive been here and really for a long time weve been fighting for respect here, Chadwell said. At least on the outside and in our conference, you feel like you have it, so I cant go to that well too hard again. I think what weve tried to get this team to realize is, You know, you had one year. You had some pretty good years, but only one year. Did you have anything to show for it?Theres a lot of one-hit wonders out there, Chadwell continued. To be a great team, you can have a great year. To be a great program, you have to show consistency and especially now that youre supposed to be the team.Charleston Southern advanced to the FCS quarterfinals last season before falling to Jacksonville State. Its spot atop the Big South is stronger because Coastal Carolina, which had become the conferences recent power, has left for the Sun Belt Conference on the FBS level.The Big South is down to six teams and hopeful of growing again in the future. The conference is at the minimum number of teams required to have an automatic bid to the FCS playoffs.Following is a team-by-team breakdown of the 2016 Big South Conference race and STATS predicted order of finish:1.

Curl, SS, Sr.; Tyler Tekac, PK, So.; Joseph Smith, LS, R-Sr.OUTLOOK: Coming off their first outright Big South championship, the Buccaneers are heavy favorites to go back-to-back. While they lost a terrific senior class that led them to the FCS quarterfinals, they return a potent run game and the conferences best defense. QB Copeland is expected to take over the read option offense, which features a physical offensive line and three senior running backs -- Hammond, Holloway (731 yards, 12 TDs) and Robinson (422 yards, 4 TDs). With their style of play, the Bucs controlled the ball for over 33 minutes per game last season. Ellis and Robinson, who are cousins, help form a stout defensive line, and LB Solomon Brown was the 2015 Big South freshman of the year. The Bucs nonconference schedule has been raised in a big way and they play four of their first five games on the road, including against five-time reigning FCS champion North Dakota State, Florida State and Coastal Carolina.SCHEDULE:Aug. 27, at North Dakota StateSept. 3, Kentucky StateSept. 10, at Florida StateSept. 24, at Monmouth*Oct. 1, at Coastal CarolinaOct. 8, Albany StateOct. 22, Presbyterian*Oct. 29, BucknellNov. 5, Gardner-Webb*Nov. 12, at Liberty*Nov. 19, Kennesaw State** -- Big South game---=2.

They should be in a transition season, but the loss of Coastal Carolina keeps the perennial Big South power in the title mix -- with their Nov. 12 game against Charleston Southern in Lynchburg. New offensive coordinator Joe Dailey has moved the offense from a pro-style that fit four-year QB Woodrum to the spread that works best for the new signal-caller Masha. While Parker and Farrow (32 receptions, 448 yards, 2 TDs) are both go-to wide receivers, the offense needs to jump-start its running game, which slumped last year amid injuries on the line. Despite the loss of Uzowihe, the Big Souths 2015 defensive player of the year, the young defense has grown up together. Greene and Dessources hope to put pressure on opposing backfields and CB Turner was a Big South preseason choice after an excellent freshman campaign.SCHEDULE:Sept. 3, at Virginia TechSept. 10, JacksonvilleSept. 17, at SMUSept. 24, Jacksonville StateOct. 1, Robert MorrisOct. 15, at Kennesaw State*Oct. 22, Monmouth*Oct. 29, Gardner-Webb*Nov. 5, at Presbyterian*Nov. 12, Charleston Southern*Nov. 17, at Coastal Carolina* -- Big South game---=3.

Wholesale Air Max Shoes. 29). The Road Warriors, er, Hawks, face a tough task as they seek to build on last years encouraging second season in the Big South. Williams took over at quarterback as a freshman and will keep developing as he again teams with his top two wideouts, Ambush and White. Defenses will be kept busy by All-Big South RB Chaney, although the Hawks are replacing three starters on the offensive line. The defense features an All-American in safety Basile. It lacked a consistent pass rush after standout DE Leslie was sidelined by injury last season, but he returns this year to team up with Talley up front. Oh yes, those three home games? Not so easy with Charleston Southern, Patriot League power Fordham and Kennesaw State.SCHEDULE:Sept. 3, at LehighSept. 10, at Delaware StateSept. 17, at Kent StateSept. 24, Charleston Southern*Oct. 1, FordhamOct. 8, at HowardOct. 13, at Presbyterian*Oct. 22, at Liberty*Oct. 29, Kennesaw State*Nov. 5, at Coastal CarolinaNov. 19, at Gardner-Webb** -- Big South game---=4.

Stone, WR; Brett Gillespie, OL; Mason Harris, DLONE TO WATCH ON OFFENSE: Trey White, QB, R-Sr. (49-for-103, 1,059 yards, 8 TDs, 6 INTs; 218 carries, 964 yards, 9 TDs)ONE TO WATCH ON DEFENSE: Taylor Henkle, S, R-So.

The Owls sold out Fifth Third Bank Stadium for every game in their excellent inaugural season, going 5-1 there. As expected, much of the nucleus returns this season, led by White. Hes the trigger in an option offense that averaged 293 rushing yards, but White also seeks to improve as a passer. Some of the goals of the offseason were to improve at running back and on the offensive line as well as build depth at linebacker and in the secondary. RBs Bennett and McKenzie combined for over 1,000 rushing yards, so the Owls appear in great shape. With Henkle and Farrow as standouts in the secondary, the front units of the defense should increase their sack total (only 18 last season).SCHEDULE:Sept. 3, East Tennessee StateSept. 10, PointSept. 24, at DuquesneOct. 1, at FurmanOct. 8, Missouri S&TOct. 15, Liberty*Oct. 22, at Gardner-Webb*Oct. 29, at Monmouth*Nov. 5, Clark AtlantaNov. 12, Presbyterian*Nov. 19, at Charleston Southern** -- Big South game---=5.

The strength of the team is at outside linebacker with the return of longtime forces Cook (77 tackles, 3.5 sacks) and Geter. The offense is even more experienced than the defense, and while dual-threat QB Maxwell became the first player in school history to lead the team in both rushing and passing yards, he has to become a more efficient passer (45.7 percent). Estes is a fourth-year starter and one of the better tight ends in the FCS. While four starters return on the offensive line, the Runnin Bulldogs need more production from their running backs.SCHEDULE:Sept. 3, at ElonSept. 10, at Western CarolinaSept. 17, The CitadelSept. 24, at OhioOct. 1, BenedictOct. 8, Presbyterian*Oct. 15, Coastal CarolinaOct. 22, Kennesaw State*Oct. 29, at Liberty*Nov. 5, at Charleston Southern*Nov. 19, Monmouth** -- Big South game---=6.

The Blue Hose averaged only 12.5 points, and while they feature the Big Souths top returning rusher in Bridges, opposing defenses will focus on him until the offense gains consistency. As a freshman, QB Cheek eventually settled in at quarterback, yet he threw only two touchdowns with six interceptions. The defense has been solid in recent seasons, but it suffered key losses, especially with Williams and Britt. The Blue Hoses top returning tackler, Green, was fifth on the team. Some of this years defensive signees could have an impact. Its probably not the season for the Blue Hose to end the regular season at Florida.SCHEDULE:Sept. 1, at Central MichiganSept. 10, at ChattanoogaSept. 17, at CampbellSept. 24, Florida TechOct. 8, at Gardner-Webb*Oct. 13, Monmouth*Oct. 22, at Charleston Southern*Oct. 29, Coastal CarolinaNov. 5, Liberty*Nov. 12, at Kennesaw State*Nov. 19, at Florida* -- Big South game Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '

HARTFORD, Conn. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China . -- Officials with the Travelers Championship golf tournament say this summers PGA event raised more than $2.8 million for charity.That is the highest amount in the history of the tournament, which began in 1952.The tournaments primary charitable beneficiary was the ALS Clinic at the Hospital for Special Care in New Britain, which treats 250 Connecticut ALS patients annually.ALS-specific causes were the charitable focus this year, following the 2015 announcement that Jay Fishman, former Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Travelers, had been diagnosed with the disease.Fishman died Aug. 19, just days after the tournament ended.The tournament has distributed more than $13 million since Travelers became title sponsor in 2007.

According to a report from the Winnipeg Free Press, the Bombers will name Acting GM Kyle Walters to the post full time. Tournament overview Darren Sammy ended the press conference after the final saying that the young Bangladeshi players in Rajshahi Kings had learned aplenty from the senior local and overseas players. But the season was more than just a learning experience for this first-time franchise. They made the final in an inspired campaign after being bottom of the league at one stage.Sammy rallied the side like he often does for West Indies, inspiring young and old with the right mixture of poise and fun. The mock-selfie celebrations aside, Sammy was in a serious mood whenever there was a strategic break, giving out instructions.What would please Rajshahi most was how the senior players gave the team big performances, while youngsters like Mehedi Hasan and Afif Hossain played their part. Farhad Reza deserves a mention. A decade into his career, Farhad has fulfilled his promise with contributions in difficult situations.Rajshahi would be proud of giving their best in a tough campaign, but they would also rue the loss in the final, when the match was in their grip for a considerable period.High point At 43 for 7 against Rangpur Riders, Rajshahi may have thought their debut season wasnt all that it was supposed to be.

The second of those defeats nearly cost them a last-four finish. They couldnt chase 162, with Samit Patel the only batsman remaining in the fight with 62. Top of the class Samit Patel was Rajshahis best all-round performer, with 288 runs and 11 wickets. He was deadly against Dhaka in the league phase, and was Player of the Match on both occasions.Under-par performerUmar Akmal made only 106 runs in nine innings, often exasperating with his shot selection and at times unlucky with the umpiring. But he should have made more runs, which would have given Rajshahi stability in the middle order.Tip for 2017 Rajshahi would need a stronger top and middle order next season, especially a batsman who offers stability like Mahmudullah or Mohammad Mithun. Their bowling attack, leadership and management seem to be in place.

No. China Jerseys . 19 Louisville | No. 21 Oklahoma State | Top 25No. 20: OregonLast Season: 9-4 (7-2 Pac-12 North)Oregons problem is defense. The Ducks have some of the best skill players in the country in my third-ranked running backs and my fifth-ranked receivers. But last year the defense allowed 485.3 yards per game, and new defensive coordinator Brady Hoke wont be able to transform the unit overnight. With five toss-up games -- Nebraska, Washington State, Washington, Stanford and Utah -- the Ducks might struggle to extend their nine-year streak of at least eight wins per season. For the first time since 2011, the Ducks are not favored to win the Pac-12.Oregons chances to win each game 09.03 vs. UC Davis: 99.4% 09.10 vs. Virginia: 86.2% 09.17 @ Nebraska: 38.7% 09.24 vs. Colorado: 80.7% 10.01 @ Washington State:?48.5% 10.08 vs. Washington: 42.8% 10.21 @ Cal: 58.0% 10.29 vs. Arizona State: 76.5% 11.05 @ USC: 22.2% 11.12 vs. Stanford: 53.8% 11.19 @ Utah: 50.5% 11.26 @ Oregon State: 79.0%Royce Freeman could lead the country in rushing, but the Ducks have a lot to prove if they still want to be considered a national power. Still, theyre good enough to go 8-4 with only mediocre quarterback play. -- Kyle BonaguraLast season the Ducks failed to win 10 games for the first time since 2007. But with as much offensive firepower as any team in the country and a new-look defense under Brady Hoke, 10-2 is certainly attainable. -- Kevin GemmellThe Ducks are the envy of all coaches with the running back stable they have, but questions at quarterback and a brand new scheme on defense mean another non-10-win season (8-4). -- Chantel JenningsIf the Ducks enjoy quality quarterback play, theyll be legitimate conference title contenders. If they dont, theyll stumble again - just like they did when Vernon Adams, Jr. was injured last year. New defensive coordinator Brady Hoke can be expected to bring improvement to that side of the ball, so expect Oregon to finish 9-3 in a logjam atop the Pac-12 North. -- David LombardiThe Ducks have a lot of questions -- quarterback, defense, etc. -- but it might be premature to count out a program that has ranked among the nations elite for over a decade, particularly when the skill position players surrounding the new QB will be among the nations best. A 9-3 record seems like a modest prediction. --Ted MillerNo. 19 Louisville | No. 21 Oklahoma State | Top 25 Cheap China Jerseys . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. http://www.chinanfljerseyscheaponline.com/ . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team.Gary Christian looks back at last week’s Northern Trust Open, picks out his West Coast swing highlights and predicts a big few weeks ahead for Rory McIlroy. It has been a spectacular West Coast swing, certainly living up to the billing with some great comeback stories and impressive rounds on some outstanding courses.Riviera is one of the top five courses on the PGA Tour and is one where you really need to have played it a handful of times to really get a good handle on it. Its just a very, very good golf course and you cant really spray it all over the place. Bubba Watson moved back to world No 4 with victory Bubba Watson had one of those weeks at the Northern Trust Open where his driving was straight, so that 320-yard average is a very dangerous weapon when youre hitting it like that.Its a pretty long course for a normal length hitter with a lot of 460-yard holes and a lot of difficult shots indeed, so to be going in with a nine-iron when the rest of the field is going in with the six gives you a big advantage.With as much golf as he has played at the quality he has performed, Jordan Spieth was always going to have tournament where he was just off. From his driver to his putter, everything just wasnt right and around a course with the quality of Riviera, theres always the potential of shooting something unexpected. McIlroy finished nine strokes adrift of Bubba Watson at Riviera We can say the same for Rory McIlroy in the final round, particularly with the putting which is obviously quite a concern. If theres a weakness in his game then its the consistency in his putting and its a little frustrating for him to get in a position and not close out the deal.As one of the worlds top three players you would have expected him to, but I think a lot it was just down to rustiness. Hes now starting to get ready for Augusta and starting to have a more regular playing schedule, so Im sure well see him do a lot better the next time hes in that position and probably win the tournament.When you start back in a different continent on a different tour it takes a little while to get everything fine-tuned for that last round, so I think thats all part of Rorys poor finish and I think hes going to be just fine. Hes familiar with all of those courses hes playing (on the Florida Swing) and I expect to see something special from McIlroy. Gary Christian Special performanceI sure weve already seen the round of the year in Brandt Snedeker at the Farmers Insurance Open. I cant see anything approaching that. For him to score that low in those conditions on that course was incredible.It was basically an unplayable golf course. When the best players in the world were in action and the average score was almost 80, it just goes to show there was something a little bit special about that 69.On possibly the hardest course on the PGA Tour where the rough was a thick as it was and the green as quick as they were, just keeping it anywhere near 76 or 77 would have been an achievement. Brandt Snedeker was the only player to shoot under par during the final round We know how brutally hard it can be playing links courses in Britain with the wind coming up, so I think Greg Owen described conditions in California quite nicely before the final round as having the potential for carnage.Snedekers achievements were amazing, but it was impressive to watch KJ Choi and Jimmy Walker try to chase him down. It was good to see they still had difficult conditions on the Monday and at least had a chance down the last few holes.Fowlers frustrationYou can frame the Phoenix Open as a tournament Rickie Fowler threw away, but you can also frame it as one where he holed countless putts to stay in contention. It just happens that Hideki Matsuyama was equal to him and hit more good shots, as Rickie hit one poor one to miss out. Fowler is a four-time winner over the past 12 months Fowler was clearly crushed in the press conference afterwards, as hes now in that position in golf where if he gets into a play-offf then he expects to win.ddddddddddddHe expects to be a better player than the guy hes going to be playing against, but it wasnt a shock that Matsuyama was able to hold him off.Weve got to realise that Matsuyama is one of those players that has the total game, so we shouldnt be surprised to see him bouncing around the worlds top five or six in two or three years time.He may have kept hitting the shots he wanted to and almost always pulled them off, but Fowler will certainly be kicking himself for finding the lake at 17. Saying that, hell also look back at the quality of drives at the 18th and feel his game is going from strength to strength. Butch Harmon takes Tim Barter through the changes hes made to Rickie Fowlers game, which Harmon believes will make him a great. It seems like his focus, driving and long game all get better when the pressure is on. Rickie used to have the tendency to spray a little bit with his driver under pressure, but thats now gone. His driving is now an incredible weapon.Maybe his next thing to work on is how he can hold and extend a lead, much like he did in Abu Dhabi. We saw his ability to chase down leads last year and come from behind, but we need to see him control things from the start a few more times. Some people make it look easy like Spieth and McIlroy, but there are very few who can do that on a consistent basis.Blast from the pastFor me, the West Coast Swing highlight was Vaughn Taylors victory at Pebble Beach. The feel-good factor of the whole story was just tremendous. Vaughn Taylor secured his first victory since 2005 Taylor had such a solid career, playing in the Ryder Cup and being a multiple PGA Tour winner, but saw his career go off the rails and was barely getting in to Web.com Tour events. Thats the great thing though when youre a PGA Tour player; even if you havent made a cut for years youre still good enough for it to be your week.He pulled it all together brilliantly and more than anything handled the emotions and the chance to win a tournament. As someone who would certainly be considered a journeyman, the feeling of watching a player like him take on the big boys and prevail was very much a heart-warming story.Exciting times aheadMcIlroy now has a busy schedule, but hes full of energy and more importantly needs to get a win under his belt. Regaining the that he has the ability to close out a win is important to him, so obviously the more tournaments hes in the better the chance of him doing that. McIlroy is looking for his first win of 2016 At least there isnt a huge amount of travel with it all being based in Florida, so there are no worries about jet-lag and he can just turn up on the Tuesday night and play in the following days Pro-Am. Hes familiar with all of the courses he will be playing and I expect to see something special from McIlroy.I think people, especially in the second half of last year, were talking about Jason Day, while the first part of 2015 was all about Jordan Spieth. With McIlroys injury and him not winning as much as he would like, I think theres a little part of him that will want to prove theres a stubborn fella from Northern Ireland who is still quite good as well.When Rory gets the bit between his teeth and is a man on a mission, well see some very impressive stuff from him.

The Boston Celtics will sign free-agent swingman Gerald Green, and have agreed to a deal with restricted free agent?Tyler Zeller?sources confirmed to ESPN. Cheap NFL Jerseys .The news of Greens signing was first reported by the Sporting News, while Zellers news was first reported by the Boston Herald.Green is expected to ink a one-year deal worth $1.4 million with the team that originally selected him with the No. 18 pick in the 2005 draft. He spent two seasons with Boston before being dealt to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of the Kevin Garnett deal in 2007.Zeller has agreed to a two-year, $16 million deal with the second year being a team option, a source told ESPNs Ramona Shelburne.By signing Zeller and Green, the Celtics appear content to head into the season with the roster they have constructed. Boston had been maintaining its salary cap flexibility while examining other trade and free agent optionsThe 30-year-old Green averaged 8.9 points per game in 69 appearances for the Heat last season, including 14 games as a starter. An erratic season for Green saw the nine-year veteran go from being a high-scoring sixth man for the Heat in the first half of the season to barely playing over long stretches entering the playoffs. Despite those inconsistencies with his role, Green repeatedly said he hoped to remain in Miami long term.Stability, however, has evaded Green for most of an NBA career in which hes played for the Celtics, Houston Rockets, Timberwolves, Dallas Mavericks, Brooklyn Nets, Indiana Pacers and Phoenix Suns. He?signed a one-year deal for the veterans minimum with the Heat last summer.Green has shot 36.1 percent beyond the 3-point arc for his career. During the 2013-14 season with Phoenix, Green shot 40 percent while hoisting a career-high 510 attempts.The 26-year-old Zeller, the 17th overall pick in the 2012 draft, appeared in only 60 games for Boston this season -- a year after starting 59. Zeller was the odd man out in the Celtics log-jammed frontcourt and logged 25 DNPs, including three in the postseason.The Celtics acquired the 7-foot Zeller -- and the first-round pick that would help land Isaiah Thomas -- as part of a three-way trade in July 2014 that helped the Cleveland Cavaliers clear the necessary cap space to bring back LeBron James.Zeller averaged 6.1 points and 3 rebounds over 11.8 minutes per game last season. He earned $2.6 million before reaching restricted free agency. The Celtics extended a $3.7 million qualifying offer in June.Information from ESPNs Michael Wallace was used in this report. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. Wholesale China Jerseys . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. http://www.chinawholesalejerseysnfl.com/ . The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. LIVERPOOL, England -- Free-scoring Liverpool won a third straight English Premier League game by thrashing 10-man Hull 5-1 on Saturday, with James Milner converting two penalties and its effervescent midfield contributing the other goals.With nine goals in its first two home games, a new-look Anfield is resembling a fortress again for Liverpool under Juergen Klopp.Liverpools problem in recent seasons has been putting away the so-called weaker teams, particularly at home, but Hull had no answer to the hosts waves of attacks, especially after Ahmed Elmohamady was sent off in the 29th minute.Adam Lallana scored Liverpools opener in the 17th after being set up by fellow midfielder Philippe Coutinho, whose goal-bound shot in the 29th was stopped by the elbow of Elmohamady -- meaning a straight red for the right back. Milner made no mistake from the spot.Winger Sadio Mane, who had already hit the crossbar,, made it 3-0 in the 36th after Lallana spun to earn enough space in the penalty area to slide a pass into his teammate. China Jerseys Online. Mane scored with a shot on the turn.Hull was playing without a recognized striker in an attempt to stem the tide but still managed to equalize, David Meyler ramming home from a corner just after the break.Coutinho restored Liverpools three-goal lead with a dipping 20-meter shot less than 60 seconds later, and Milner scored his second from the spot after Daniel Sturridge was fouled by Andrew Robertson.Liverpool has 24 goals in eight matches in all competitions this season.It was a world-class performance in counter pressing, Klopp said. We didnt give Hull the opportunity to create confidence. It was wonderful to watch. All in all, really good.
